Aries (Spring Equinox-approx. April 21st): Happy birthday, Aries! This is your month! Although you may not be feeling 100% at the beginning, you may find that quickly things take a turn for the better through your personal relationships. The work place may continue to be a forge of transformation though, but you are also in a position for long term growth and expansion through the investments you make now. As the month moves forward, you may find that things get smoother overall, but also that the emphasis is now on harmonizing your occupational and life goals with the new starts and changes you are making. You may also find your energy levels are higher than normal, and that if you continue to work your personal relationships, you can achieve both forward advancement and fun.
Taurus (Approx. April 21st to approx. May 21st): April may start off with a desire for creature comforts, and while it would be wise to indulge, be careful it is not too much of a good thing. You may also find your emotions and spirituality are two major focal points. As the month progresses, you may find that the unexpected becomes the norm, and that the Internet plays a larger than average role in your life. Your emotions may be tenser than normal during the last two weeks of the month too, so it would be wise to exercise extra emotional control. It would also be wise to make minor adjustments when necessary, especially when it comes to communication and the affairs of your heart. Professionally though, you may find that opportunities come your way, but they are not simply flash in the pan opportunities. Rather, the ones that come up now may be focused on the long term.
Gemini (Approx. May 21st to Summer Solstice): Emotional and spiritual challenges may be the norm for the first half of the month, but if you are responsible, disciplined, and attentive, you can achieve profound healing. Financially speaking, it is still wise to play it safe and conservative for the whole month. As the month moves on, you may notice the heavy emphasis on emotions and spirituality subside, and get replaced with opportunities for healing through communication and conversation. You may also find more energy than normal at your disposal. Personal relationships may be a major focal point during the last two weeks, whether you desire it or not.
Cancer (Summer Solstice to approx. July 21st): Emotions, and in particular emotions that may overwhelm you, may be the dominant theme for the first half of the month. You may find that your own wounds are exposed through personal communication, so it would be wise to own them and begin the healing journey. The professional life may still be calling for transformation, and overall the first two weeks may be intense in general. As the month progresses, you may find that it is out of the frying pan and into the fire, but the good news is that most of this happens every year around this time. What makes this year different though, is that your wounds may be getting triggered more often than normal, and that your limits are being made noticeably clear, so it would be wise to see what they say and to heal them whenever possible. In the second half of April you may find your intuition is your best guide.
Leo (Approx. July 21st to approx. August 21st): When April begins, you may find you are in a great position to heal your honor code and address where you can grow as a person. You may also be feeling chattier than normal, and it would be wise to put that to good use to advance your goals if they involve person to person communication. As the month moves forward, you may find that more and more good things open up for you, but for some reason you may feel emotionally out of sorts. This will pass, and most likely comes from your personal wounds you now see exposed in front of you. As earlier in the month, you may find your energy levels are higher than normal, and this is a good thing because you may spend a lot of the last half of April full of activity and motion, more so than normal.
Virgo (Approx. August 21st to Autumnal Equinox): Emotional tension, spiritual tension, and the Internet may all be sources of tension and difficulties as the month begins, so you may find it wise to focus on the one area that is under your control at the moment, which is the career and occupation. In that area, you may find you are in position to make long term foundational decisions and changes, not only now, but also lasting through at least next year. As April moves forward, you may find things stay about the same, but that your words may impact people stronger than normal. You may also find you are more accident prone as well, especially if it involves your limbs. It is also worth noting it is still smart to play things financially conservative, especially if it involves your investments.
Libra (Autumnal Equinox to approx. October 21st): This may be a challenging month in general Libras, so it would be wise to proceed with caution and to proceed slowly, making adjustments where necessary. You may find communicating with friends and loved ones helps. You may also find that finances are rolling along nice and smoothly, and that your investments and foreign affairs are producing results. As the month moves forward though, you may find more tension comes to the surface, and a lot of this has to do with your personal healing journey. You may also find it wise to continue with your personal connections.
Scorpio (Approx. October 21st to approx. November 21st): The intuition, your emotions, and how they all fit into the overall direction of your life may be the major themes for the first part of April. You may also find that like other signs, your energy levels are stronger than normal. However, there is a danger too, which is simply to be wary of overindulgence. As April moves forward, you may find the emotions wane, but that the intuition is still on point. The career, occupation, and overall direction of life may be progressing along nicely, and that while others may have challenges, right now you are the eye in the storm, calm, and proceeding ahead like business as usual. It is also wise to note your temper may be shorter than normal, and that if you hurry through things, you set yourself up for accidents.
Sagittarius (Approx. November 21st to Winter Solstice): April may start off with a lot of optimism and good fortune coming your way, but only if you do the hard work and exhibit dedication when it comes to manifesting them. While your emotions may be irritated, and your communication may be challenged, you may find this actually allows you to focus on work rather than discussion. You may also find that through the whole of the month it would be wise to watch your temper and do your best to avoid accidents to your limbs if you are in a hurry. As April moves forward, you may find that it’s more of the same, as for you, effectively, it is going to be a month of activity and what was discussed in the first part of this description.
Capricorn (Winter Solstice to approx. January 21st): Emotionally and spiritually you may find things are moving along nicely as April starts. The work place may be a major focal point overall, and you may find yourself stepping into new, higher roles. There may be challenges present though, especially that have to do with doing the right thing and admitting when and where you’re wrong so that you can fix what needs fixed and move on. As April moves forward, you may find the emotional feel good vibes of the first half of the month are replaced with more and more challenges, now including communication and your intimate relationships. Emotionally you may be handling things fine, but it would be wise to see where it is helpful to drop emotional baggage in order to move ahead where you want to go in life.
Aquarius (Approx. January 21st to approx. February 21st): For April, you may find it wise to focus on your personal healing, whatever it may be. Spending and investing liberally may also be wise during the first two weeks. If you are feeling a desire to be more social and to spend time with friends, then feel free to indulge for the bulk of the month. As April moves on though, you may discover things start rolling along even better, but that there may be challenges that come up with electronics and/or dealing with the Internet. You may also find that during the latter part of your month, your emotions may be out of sorts, but this will shortly pass after April 20th. It would also be wise to take a second look at your investments later in April to adjust for the new year.
Pisces (Approx. February 21st to Spring Equinox): Even though April is not the birth month for Pisces, it may feel like it as it begins. You may find that focusing on the spiritual and emotional are two major life areas to address in the first two weeks. You may also note it is wise to play things financially conservative, and to watch your temper, especially when dealing with people on a one on one level. As April moves on, you may find the emotions and spirituality take a back seat in sharp contrast to the first half of the month. You may feel the desire and longing for new beginnings, and it would be wise to make the appropriate changes when applicable. You may also find your intuition is sharper than normal, and that the challenges in your personal communication intensify.
